“A moment of truth is defined as an instance where the customer and the organization come into contact with one another in a manner that gives the customer an opportunity to either form or change an impression about the firm”.

The Fresh Connection is a virtual Fresh Fruit juice company in trouble and it needs the help of you and your supply chain team!

By the magic of remote simulation you will participate as an executive team member, joining a team of 4 participants who represent key roles in the business. You’ll be required to make strategic and tactical decisions. You will have effective carte blanche from your CEO, to do what is necessary to secure a positive return on investment (ROI) for this virtual business. 

As in real business, you will experience dynamic scenarios with curve balls and obstacles to overcome as new challenges arise! Key to success is collaboration, communication and the ability to think on your feet by responding to challenges, making quick but sound decisions. You will feel the consequences of your actions, good or bad! Enjoy this amazing learning experience in a totally risk free environment.

The Fresh Connection, an experiential learning platform, is used by top 500 companies globally to educate and skill supply chain professionals on supply chain best practice. At the same time improving their ability to collaborate and communicate, breaking down silos to ensure improved business performance.

Don't just listen to us - listen to Andre Tustin – Aerosud whose team made it all the way to Portugal for the Global Challenge final in Lisbon in 2017 | "The Global Challenge allowed the team to take risks and play out new ideas. This was great for cause and effect and helped with strategic and big picture thinking, collaboration and communication. It also forced out of the box thinking and was a great overall practical learning experience."
